APPENDIX 



BOARD OF MISSIONS— REPORT NO. 1 

Our Conference is aware of the serious situation which con- 
fronts the Mission work of our Church. The General Board ad- 
journed its May meeting without making its accustomed appropria- 
tions, owing to the lack of funds. It was decided, however, to take 
the matter before the Church at large and ask for a special offer- 
ing of $750,000 to meet the imminent needs, and to report the re- 
sponse to this appeal to an adjourned meeting on December 10th. 

Such a situation demands thoughtful attention, and your Mission 
Board offers the following recommendations: 

1. That the North Carolina Conference attempt to secure as 
soon as possible, a special offering in cash and short time pledges, 
the sum of $50,000 for our General Mission work. 

2. That the Presiding Elders be requested to direct this work 
in their respective districts, and that the Board of Missions in 
Conference with them, determine the basis of distribution of the 
above amount to the several districts. 

3. That F. S. Love be designated from the Board of Missions 
to assist the Presiding Elders and the pastors in presenting this 
work to the Churches, and that district meetings be held as soon 
as practicable after the Conference. 

W. W. PEELE, Chairman. 
WALTER PATTEN, Secretary. 

BOARD OF MISSIONS— REPORT NO. 2 

In view of the fact that the collection of Centenary pledges by 
the local treasurers has become a dead issue, we recommend that 
these treasurers be relieved of further responsibility in collecting 
these pledges. 

But inasmuch as there remains a large sum in adjusted pledges 
in the North Carolina Conference which seems to be reasonably 
collectable, we recommend that these pledge cards and records in 
the hands of the local Centenary treasurers be transferred to the 
Centenary Commission for collection and that the ministers and 
local Centenary treasurers co-operate in effecting such transfer. 

F. S. LOVE, Vice-Chairman, 
WALTER PATTEN, Secretary.

BOARD OF MISSIONS— REPORT NO. 3 

James Buchanan Duke 

In the passing of James Buchanan Duke, the Methodist circuit 
rider of the plains, the hills, and the mountains of North Carolina, 
has lost a friend. This friend has watched with keen interest the 
fruits of God's gift made through his hands and rejoiced to have 
the servants of God fare forth upon their life bearing mission. 

Your Board of Missions breathes a prayer of thankfulness to 
God that He gave such a vision and wealth to this benefactor, that 
the circuit rider will continue to go forth victoriously braving the 
storms of the coast, the heat of the plains, and the winter blasts 
of the Blue Ridge to the end that the spirit of the living Christ 
may permeate the homes and lives of the toilers of the soil whether 
they dwell on the banks of the Albemarle or in the mountain caves. 

It is the desire of your Board of Missions that at this time 
Bishop Denny be requested to voice the thanks of North Carolina 
Methodism to God for His blessings upon us through this servant. 

The Mission Call 

The dividends of missions are declared in the terms of life. 
When mission work and mission giving ceases, then life becomes 
atrophid. The command of our Lord to "go ye into all the world" 
is as living and obligatory for us today as it was for the disciples 
of old. The mission work of our Church is at the cross roads. 
Retrenchment after retrenchment has been made until we can no 
longer retreat. We must at least hold the possessed outposts, and 
speedily send forth reinforcements to the rescue. The reinforce- 
ments asked of the North Carolina Conference are not in terms of 
men, but in terms of food and clothing for those holding the 
frontier. 

It is especially desired by the General Board of Missions that the 
North Carolina Conference finance for the coming year our mis- 
sionaries in Kobe District, Japan, and a group in the Western 
Mexican Mission. To this end we are asked to make a special 
offering of fifty thousand dollars, which has been allotted to the 
districts as follows: 

Durham, $6,400.00; Elizabeth City, $4,450.00; Fayetteville, $5,- 
550.00; New Bern, $5,550.00; Raleigh, $5,900.00; Rockingham, $5,- 
650.00; Washington, $6,450.00; Weldon, $5,300.00; Wilmington, $4,- 
800.00. 

The work of securing this special missionary offering has been 
entrusted to the presiding elders and ministers in charge. It is 



6U North Carolina Annual Conference 

urged that a special district meeting be held in rotation in each 
district as soon as practicable after the adjournment of Conference 
as the results of the meetings shall be reported to the Board of 
Missions December 10th. 

Recommendations 
To meet the tasks and demands upon us, the following recom- 
mendations are offered: 

1. That the Rev. F. S. Love be elected Conference Missionary 
Secretary to assist in the work of the District meetings without 
salary. 

2. That the fourth Sunday offering for missions ordered by 
the General Conference is sacredly preserved for the support of 
our work in Europe, as now directed by the General Sunday 
School Board. 

3. That every Epworth League makes a pledge for the support 
of Africa, abroad, and Paine College and Arizona, at home. 

4. That the assessment for Conference Mission work be in- 
creased from $18,000 to $21,000 and that the full payments of all 
assessments be secured. 

5. That Mr. M. E. Newsom be nominated as the lay representa- 
tive, and the Rev. F. S. Love be nominated as the clerical represen- 
tative, of the North Carolina Conference on the General Board of 
Missions. 

6. That Rev. W. W. Peele be elected to succeed himself as the 
representative of the Board of Missions on the Board of Directors 
of the Pastors' Summer School.

REPORT OF BOARD OF EDUCATION 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION MOVEMENT 

We recommend that our people do all that they can to close up 
the Christian Education Movement in 1926 by securing all subscrip- 
tions. We ask that next February and March be a time of special 
effort for this purpose. Inasmuch as Trinity Park School has been 
discontinued we recommend that the unpaid subscriptions directed 
to it should be transferred to Duke University. 

We ask that H. M. North, L. S. Massey, and John C. Lockhart 
represent our Church in matters touching Religious Education in 
tax-supported institutions. 

We suggest that the General Board of Education be requested 
to consider the feasibility of holding two or more Bible Confer- 
ences within the bounds of this Annual Conference. W. A. Stan- 



62 North Carolina Annual Conference 

bury is nominated to represent our Board of Education at the 
Methodist Educational Association. 

H. M. North is nominated to succeed himself as one of the 
managers of the Pastors' Summer School. 

DUKE UNIVERSITY 

All of us rejoice at the new era which is opening for Duke 
University. It is with gratitude to God and also to our human 
benefactor that we note the very large increase in our financial 
resources. Since our last report Mr. J. B. Duke established a 
foundation of forty million dollars for Educational and Religious 
purposes. Thirty-two percent of this is available for Duke Uni- 
versity. In his will, recently announced, an additional seventeen 
million dollars were left to this institution. About four thousand 
acres of land have been secured for new development. Ten new 
buildings are now being erected on the old campus. Eleven hundred 
and sixty-four students were enrolled during the last year. The 
authorities are expanding the courses to meet the new program. 
Within the University, three large divisions have been made, the 
Business Division, the Educational Division, and the Student Life 
Division. The utmost loyalty of our constituency is asked to make 
Duke University not only in physical size, but especially in quality, 
a great institution. 

GREENSBORO COLLEGE 

Greensboro College has had an increase of forty-six students 
the past year. We are glad to record the gift of one hundred 
thousand dollars from Mr. B. N. Duke towards endowment. In 
addition to this subscriptions for about one hundred thousand on 
endowment were taken in a local campaign. 

Greensboro College met the conditions required for an A-Grade 
College and entered officially into that relationship last February. 
The College asks us to renew our endorsement to secure a half 
million dollars for endowment. 

LOUISBURG COLLEGE 

It was good to see that Louisburg College has had a twenty- 
five per cent increase in its student body this year. They are in 
the midst of an effort to raise a half million dollars for building 
and endowment. In addition to many small gifts they have two of 
large proportions. One of seventy-two thousand five hundred dol- 
lars from Mr. R. H. Wright, and the other of one hundred thousand 
from Mr. B. N. Duke. We are asked to endorse a movement on 



Journal of Proceedings 63 

the part of Louisburg College to raise a fund of a half million 
dollars outside of the Churches proper, for building and endowment. 
CAROLINA COLLEGE 
This institution is our youngest and is small in its number of 
students and faculty, but fine in its spirit and quality of its work 
and loyalty. Its buildings are good. It maintains the standard of 
a Junior College as respects the requirements of the Church and of 
the State. Its especial field seems to be the education of poor 
girls. An effort is being made to secure an endowment. 

ESTIMATES 
The following are the estimates and apportionments of the 
amount allotted to education as represented in these causes withir 
our Conference: 

Duke University $10,000.00 

Greensboro College 6,250.00 

Louisburg College 5,000.00

64 North Carolina Annual Conference 

DISTRICT CONFERENCE RECORD REPORT 

Your Committee on District Conference Records begs leave to 
report that records of all districts have been examined by us and 
found to be in good form and neatly recorded. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. A. MARTIN", Chairman, 

N. B. STRICKLAND, Secretary. 

REPORT OF BOARD OF CHURCH EXTENSION 

The Board suffered a very grievous loss this year in the death 
of Rev. G. M. Daniel, a most faithful and useful member. 

We find a constantly increasing demand upon this Board for 
aid, even by the larger Churches. These larger Churches are for- 
getting this Board was born and exists for the purpose of aiding 
weak, struggling congregations to build. And this demand has 
become so large we are forced to turn almost all our rural applica- 
tions over to the Duke Commission so that we may aid a few of 
the others. The Duke Commission will meet in a few weeks to 
dispose of those turned over to it. 

Your Board wishes to join with everybody concerned in express- 
ing our thanks to almighty God for the great aid given this cause 
by Mr. Duke, and to rejoice that he so planned that this aid will 
grow larger as the years go by. 

A resolution was passed by the Board most heartily commending 
the efforts of the Evangelist Club of Fayetteville to build a Protes- 
tant Memorial Church at Fort Bragg, where there are so many 
Protestant young men, sixty per cent of whom are native born 
Americans. 

We are constrained still to beg that our preachers and other 
leaders present our great need of an adequate loan fund to those 
who are able to give, as a fine opportunity to erect our own monu- 
ments in memorial funds. 

Applications were recommended to the Duke Commission as 
follows (amounts cannot be given as that Commission has not yet 
had a meeting) :

REPORT OF SUNDAY SCHOOL BOARD TO N. C. CONFERENCE 

Your Sunday School Board submits the following report: 

The year just concluded has shown a continuation of the growth 
and progress of the work throughout the bounds of the N. C. Con- 
ference. All the older and better established phases of our work 
have been carried forward with splendid success, and some new 
phases have been promoted in a way that offers prospects of last- 
ing good to our Church. 

Our employed staff has been quite active; and much use has 
been made of volunteer workers, including the officers of your 
Board, district workers, approved checkers, and others. Some 
idea of the scope of the work done by the Conference Superinten- 
dent may be gained from the fact that, in the discharge of the 
duties of his office, he traveled over 13,000 miles, visited 73 Sunday 
Schools and Churches, made 166 addresses and talks, supervised 
29 training schools, and taught in 17 of them, spending 217 days 
in the field. In addition he set up and directed the second annual 
check-up campaign, in which approximately 75 volunteer workers 
assisted and about 300 Sunday Schools were visited and checked, 
and gave general supervision to all the work committed to the Board. 

The elementary superintendent was quite active, traveling over 
6,000 miles, visiting 64 Sunday Schools and Churches, working in 
24 Training Schools, promoting Children's Week, and making other 
valuable contributions to the advancement of our work with chil- 
dren. 

Our Training Record 

During the year a total of 2,805 training awards were issued 
in the North Carolina Conference, including: 

Gold Seal Diplomas 5 

Blue Seal Diplomas 29 



Journal of Proceedings 67 

Diplomas (without seal) 52 

Standard Certificates 2409 

Cokesbury Certificates 310 

Some indication of the growth of our training program during 
the past quadrennium (covering the period of the present Confer- 
ence Superintendents tenure of office) is the following, being the 
awards by years: 

1922 1,171 

1923 1,563 

1924 2,367 

1925 2,805 

We conducted this year 29 training schools as against 20 last. 
Of the 29 schools held, 18 were Standard Schools, 9 Cokesbury, 
and two non-standard. 

Special mention should be made of the Cokesbury Training 
Course, which has been made available this year. Ministering 
primarily to workers in small Sunday Schools, as is the prime 
purpose of this course, the North Carolina Conference has within 
the few months in which this course has been available, established 
a record which places our Conference in the forefront of Confer- 
ences in Southern Methodism in this type of work, only one other 
Conference excelling or equalling our record. This emphasis on 
Cokesbury work has not caused us to let up with reference to Stan- 
dard Training work. We conducted this year 18 Standard Schools 
as against 14 last year, 9 in 1923 and 6 in 1922. 

Summarizing, Ave find the following interesting facts concern- 
ing training schools: 

Schools conducted 29 

Courses offered 108 

Sunday Schools represented 351 

Official enrollment 2055 

Certificates issued 1437 

Counted as enrolled are only those present at least half of the 
time, and most of those so counted were present for the full period 
of the school, which extended through six days. Attention is also 
called to the fact that approximately one-half of our schools were 
directly served by training schools this year. 

The 2,085 training awards issued in the North Carolina Con- 
ference this year include the following items: 

In Standard Training Schools 1127 

In Cokesbury Schools 310 

In Colleges 880 



68 North Carolina Annual Conference 

Correspondence Work 292 

Special Classes, etc 196 

Of the 880 listed as earned in colleges, 713 were issued in Duke 
University, 32 in Louisburg College, 84 in Greensboro, 8 in Ruther- 
ford, and the others in miscellaneous institutions outside the state. 
During the year 115 preachers earned 174 training certificates. 
Progress made in this phase of our work is indicated as follows:

Programs of Work- 
Next to our training work, and deserving to rank with it in 
importance and emphasis, has been our Program of Work, placing 
and checking. A total of 329 Sunday Schools have adopted these 
standards of efficiency, in keeping with paragraph 390 of the Dis- 
cipline, an increase of 117 over last year. During the period of 
October 11-25 we conducted our second annual Conference-wide 
check-up campaign, in which an effort was made to visit each of 
these 329 schools. 

Reports from schools whose reports have been audited show over 
twice as many ranking schools as the whole campaign showed last 
year. Approximately 650 seals will be awarded these schools, as 
against about 400 the previous year. 

Wesley Classes 

We have reason to believe that our Wesley Class work is in 
better condition than it has been in recent years at least; perhaps 
ever. Through our Conference Federation at Sanford, our Program 
of Work, check-up campaign, correspondence, and personal touch 
here and there, we have injected some new life into organized class 
work. We have had encouraging success in securing annual re- 
ports, which we consider vital to the interests of organized class 
work. Records in our office and at Nashville indicate over 500 
Wesley Classes registered to date. Many of these have not sub- 
mitted any report. 

Conference-wide Conference 

Our second annual Conference-wide Conference, held at Sanford. 
April 7, 8, 9, 1925, was largely attended. Approximately 500 people 



Journal op Proceedings 69 

were present as delegates and visitors. Immediately preceeding 
the Conference proper there was a meeting of Board members, 
presiding elders, district workers, and employed staff in what we 
call our Conference Council. We think these gatherings proved 
quite worth-while and should be continued. 

Dual Extension Program 

We have this year given considerable attention to the subject 
of missionary education and Sunday School extension. In both 
Standard and Cokesbury Training Schools, in Programs of Work, 
and otherwise, we have emphasized this important phase of our 
work. Our progress, however, has been hindered by the situation 
in which we found ourselves following the Centenary period. 

The Board has adopted a plan recommended by the General 
Boards concerned, of adjustment of the claims of the Centenary 
and (which is a part of the agreement) a plan called the Dual 
Extension Program. Briefly stated in its more important details, 
the Centenary adjustment plan proposes that Sunday Schools should 
follow paragraph 392 of the Discipline and observe the fourth Sun- 
day in each month as Missionary Day, and send the offering taken 
on this day to Mr. E. J. Cheatham, Treasurer, Franklinton, N. C, 
to be applied (1) 50% to our Church's missionary work in Europe 
and (2) 50% to Sunday School extension work in rural and mis- 
sionary territory in our Conference. If, and when, the total 
amount of item (2) becomes sufficient to cover a budget of ap- 
proximately $3,500.00 for this work, the total amount of the fourth 
Sunday offerings are to go to the work in Eurpore. All moneys 
directed to this European work will, at the same time, tend to 
liquidate our Conference Centenary adjusted balance, amounting 
in March to $13,432.80. The plan contemplates the putting of a 
man in the field to carry forward extension work in rural and 
mission territory. 

Miscellaneous Matters 

Emphasis from time to time during the year has been given to 
the proper observance of Decision Day, Children's Week, Sunday 
School Day, and other special days. We have lost no opportunity, 
also, to emphasize the importance of the proper arrangement and 
equipment of Sunday School rooms and departments, and have 
aided numerous building committees in securing plans in keeping 
with the requirements of our denomination. The necessity and 
opportunity of reaching the unreached and teaching the untaught, 
moreover, have been kept rather constantly on the minds and 



70 North Carolina Annual Conference 

hearts of our leaders, and efforts have been to extend the member- 
ship and fellowship of the Sunday School. 

Considerable interest has been shown in some communities dur- 
ing the year in Week-day Religious Education, Daily Vacation 
Bible Schools and Home and Parent-Teacher Work. We have lent 
such encouragement and assistance to these enterprises as we 
were able. We believe that perhaps never has there been more 
widespread and intelligent interest in religion and religious in- 
struction, and we feel that the time is opportune to go forward to 
the limit of our abilities and resources. 

Recommendations 
In order that the work may go forward during the coming 
year, we submit the following recommendations: 

1. That Standard Training Schools be conducted in communi- 
ties guaranteeing an enrollment that will make it possible to issue 
a minimum of 50 certificates of credit. 

2. That Cokesbury Training Schools be conducted, where practi- 
cable, in communities not already served by Standard Training 
Schools. 

3. We, the Sunday School Board, express our gratitude to the 
presiding elders, pastors, and superintendents for their interest and 
co-operation in behalf of Sunday Schools, bespeak their continued 
interest and co-operation, and ask that they join members of this 
Board in taking for credit annually one or more units of the Stan- 
dard or cokesbury Training courses. 

4. That we recognize the educational value of the official Pro- 
gram of Work for schools, departments, and classes and continue, 
with renewed vigor, our efforts to make them operative throughout 
the Conference. 

5. That we co-operate heartily with the General Sunday School 
Board in its Church-wide Sunday School membership campaign. 

6. That special stress be laid upon the matter of evangelism 
in the Sunday School and that we recommend to the pastors and 
Sunday School officers and teachers the plan outlined by the 
General Sunday School Board. 

7. That we heartily approve and recommend the observance 
of Children's Week in as many of our Churches as practicable. 

8. That an effort be made to secure the observance of Sunday 
School Day in all Sunday Schools. 

9. That we recognize the inspirational and educational value 
of district, sub-district, and charge institutes, and arrange to hold 
such meetings wherever practicable. 



Journal ok Proceedings 71 

10. That we go on record as favoring week-day religious in- 
struction properly correlated with the work done on Sunday, and 
call attention to the special materials for schools undertaking this 
type of work available from the General Sunday School Board. 

11. That we urge building committees to acquaint themselves 
with the building standards of their Church, available through their 
Conference Sunday School Board office at Durham, and through 
the Joint Committee on Church and Sunday School Architecture. 

12. That we recognize the importance of the preservation of 
the Christian home and endorse the Home and Parent-Teacher 
work of the General Sunday School Board. 

13. That we approve the action of the Sunday School Board 
in adopting the Centenary adjustment plan and Dual Extension 
Program. 

The Sunday School Board ifeels that its employed workers have 
given unstintedly of their physical and mental energy in the pro- 
motion of the Sunday School work and is sure that the Conference 
appreciates the progress which has been made in this work during 
their tenure of office. 

Therefore we are pleased to announce the re-employment of Mr. 
L. L. Gobbel as Conference Superintendent of Sunday School Work 
at a salary of $3,300.00 per annum, and of Miss Georgia Keene as 
Conference Elementary Superintendent at a salary of $1,500.00 per 
annum. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. E. SPENCE, Chairman, 
THOMAS McM. GRANT, Secretary. 

EPWORTH LEAGUE BOARD 

Your Epworth League Board submits the following Report: 
Much is being said about the standards of life being held by the 
young people of our day. We desire to affirm our faith in them 
and declare that it is our purpose to give to them any service 
that they may be permitted us to the end that they may be enlisted 
and trained for effective service in the Church. 

We are grateful in being able to report that progress is being 
made in this department of the work of our Church. In the 
language of our General Secretary, "there are many indications 
of the continued growth of the League idea in the mind of the 
Church and the League is obtaining an enhanced valuation on the 
part of the ministers." As concrete evidence of this there was 
reported in the minutes of the Annual Conferences for 1924 a net 



72 North Carolina Annual Conference 

gain in chapters of 478 and in members of 6226, making the aggre- 
gate in our Church 7,963 chapters and 260,345 members. The 
president of our Conference Epworth League likewise reports that 
many evidences of good work and steady growth are to be found. 

We would direct the attention of the Conference to our Sum- 
mer Assembly. The last session was held at Louisburg College 
for which 300 or more delegates were registered during the week 
Sixteen Standard of Efficiency Certificates were issued; ten leagues 
received Christian Culture Diplomas, one hundred and seventy- 
seven Christian Culture Certificates were awarded and ten of 
our young people gave themselves for definite Christian service. 
These facts indicate something of the work being done through 
this channel. Throughout the Church the sessions of the last sum- 
mer have surpassed in value all previous ones and the records will 
probably show an increase in attendance. In this connection we 
desire to express our appreciation of the splendid work of Rev. 
T. M. Grant, President, and those associated with him in the work 
of the North Carolina Conference Epworth League. 

Again we would direct attention to the work of our District 
Secretaries. We regard them as being a vital factor in promoting 
and sustaining the work of the Epworth League. Only with the 
sympathetic co-operation of the pastors of our Conference can their 
work continue to be effective. 

Your attention has been called to the Methodist Young People's 
Convention to be held in Memphis, Tenn., December 31-January 
3, 1926. The allotment of delegates from our Conference is one hun- 
dred. It is very earnestly desired that we shall send our full 
quota and to this end we solicit your help. In keeping with the 
call which has been issued, we ask that you join with other An- 
nual Conferences in prayer in behalf of the Convention. 

There is a growing conviction that the work of our young peo- 
ple ought to be so correlated that the duplication of effort will be 
eliminated. We are offering a memorial to our General Conference 
which looks to the accomplishment of this end. 

We desire to recommend that Aniversary Day be observed in 
all of the congregations of the Conference. 

It is further recommended that the Epworth League officers 
be installed at one of the regular Church services and that our 
pastors give such other recognition as will be conducted to the 
progress of the work. 

We desire to co-operate faithfully with our General Epworth 
League Board, our Conference Epworth League, and our General 
Secretary. 

W. A. CADE, Chairman, 

E. L. HILLMAN, Secretary.

BOARD OF CHRISTIAN LITERATURE 

It is our privilege and pleasure to report most favorably as to 
these important interests committed to our consideration. Chris- 
tian Literature, we feel, should command constant concern among 
our people, because of its purpose and power to increase intelli- 
gence, to arouse activities, to encourage energetic efforts, and to 
stimulate systematic service and sacrifice — all of which are notice- 
ably needed in the different departments of the work of our cher- 
ished Church. These facts find proof in the statistical statements 
submitted by our several Publishing Houses, and the CVlethodist 
Board of Publication in this Conference. No literature is so suitable 
and serviceable to our members as the products of our presses; and 
we trust our pastors may persistently present, privately and 
publicly, these products, persuading our people, if possible, to 
purchase and peruse them. 

NORTH CAROLINA CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE 
Owing to certain conditions our 1925 campaign was cut short, 
and there has resulted a regrettable reduction in the circulation 
of the Conference Organ. We recommend that our pastors make 
uniform use of the assistants appointed by the Quarterly Confer- 
ence, as agents, if necessary, with reasonable remuneration. We 
cheerfully commend the job printing department, which has enjoyed 
an increase of nearly 25% over last year. 

Revs. M. Bradshaw and S. B. Turrenfine have been re-elected 
to succeed themselves as members of the Methodist Board of 
Publication. Rev. A. W. Plyler, of the Western North Carolina 
Oonfernece, having been re-elected and re-appointed Editor of the 
North Carolina Christian Advocate, and Rev. T. A. Sikes having 
been re-elected Business Manager, we respectfully request Bishop 
Collins Denny to re-appoint the latter to said position, his salary 
being $4,500.00.

PUBLISHING HOUSE 

No report of this worthy institution of the Church has carried 
greater cause for gratitude and rejoicing than the last one, assur- 
ing us of unprecedented increase in almost all department, especi- 
ally in the sales of Sunday School lesson material, this gain being 
$47,000.00, while the merchandise sales increased $62,000.00 and 
the appropriation to Conference Claimantes is $100,000.00, the 
total net sales having been $1,979,732.45. Ministers and laymen, 
because of their loyalty and support, are creadited with a good 
measure of this pleasing prosperity. 

We sincerely share with our Publishing House the regret as 
to the diminishing list of the Christian Advocate, as we esteem 
this to be a most excellent paper, and altogether deserving of a 
far more generous patronage. And we believe that this estimate 
is applicable also to the Methodist Review. 

J. M. ORMOND, Chairman.

BOARD OF TEMPERANCE AND SOCIAL SERVICE 

The advocates of prohibition are challenged to preserve their 
victorious battle of half a century for national prohibition. When 
the 18th amendment was ratified by forty-seven states, the advo- 
cates of a sober nation believed, and had a right to believe, their 
long fight was at an end, and that they might trust to govern- 
mental agencies to carry out the constitution's mandate. While 



Journal of Proceedings 75 

that amendment has outlawed the saloon and the still and lessened 
drunkenness, the enforcement has fallen short of what law abiding 
citizens had a right to expect. 

Today, by reason of laches of officials, and by reason of an 
organized propaganda for a return to the evils inseparable from 
legalized manufacture and sale of intoxicants, the opponents of 
prohibition and temperance — one and inseparable — challenge the 
Church and the advocates of law to make good its reform imbedded 
in the constitution. Nullification threatens the blessings which a 
sober nation promised. 

As representatives of a Christian Church, which crusaded for 
national prohibition, we call upon the people to respect the spirit 
and letter of the law by personal total abstinence, and by holding 
up the hands of all judges and other officials, who seek to enforce 
it, and we call upon all ministers and laymen to arouse the con- 
science and public sentiment to a realization of the hopes raised 
when the law was enacted. Abstinence in the home should be 
insisted upon and the Church should unitedly call upon the people 
and the authorities to hold this and all laws in reverence. The 
nation cannot live half law breaker and half law observer. The 
only alternative to law observance is anarchy. We shall see the 
law respected in the home and enforced in the courts, or the crime 
wave will engulf us. With that choice presented, the issue will 
not be in doubt when the good people are aroused to undergird 
the law their long and courageous advocacy secured. The hour 
has struck when all officers of the law, from the lowest to the 
highest, should gird themselves to uphold the majesty of law. 
Recognizing the need of the continued efforts of the Anti-Saloon 
League, we recommend the re-appointment of Rev. W. B. North 
and Robert L. Flowers as our representatives on the Board of 
Trustees of that militant organization. 

Along with stressing the observance of total abstinence, our 
pastors and people are urged to place emphasis upon the sacred 
observance of the Sabbath, too often given over to recreations which 
militate against attendance upon divine service and the reading 
and contemplation of the Word of God. 

The awakened interest in the humane treatment of prisoners, 
the improvement in care of the poor and defective, and the broad- 
ening of the work of social welfare by the state and by the Churches 
are hailed as proof of the growing influence of Christianity in the 
lives of the people and the thought of the commonwealth. The 
aid and the active support of all agencies of humanity is pledged 



76 North Carolina Annual Conference 

by this Church and this Conference. The day must dawn when no 

child will lack training and care, no dependent feel neglect, no 

prisoner be without sympathy and humane treatment and no ear 

be closed to the cry of those in need either of gentleness or charity.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON BIBLE SOCIETY 

The Bible given to us through inspired men from God is our 
weapon with which to fight the enemy of our souls. 

As soldiers of the cross we should take the proper drilling that 
we best know to us this sword of the spirit so as to be victorious 
in life's great battle. 

We should also seek to furnish this weapon to the struggling 
nations of the world. 

Such is the function and purpose of the American Bible Society. 

We, as your Board, therefore, would recommend that our 
pastors and teachers make more diligent effort to circulate the 
one, two, and five cent portions of the scriptures, beginning with 
the gospels, especially among the children and young people. 

That we encourage reading the Bible through, especially by our 
young people. 

That we also encourage carrying copies of at least portions of 
the Bible in our vest pockets. 

We further suggest that our pastors, some time during the year, 
take a voluntary offering to be sent as a special, to the house, or 
added to the budget at their discretion. 

For all information wanted, write Dr. M. B. Porter, Adam St.,. 
Richmond, Va.

publication of the Conference Journal, this amount to be paid by 
the eigh Conference Boards in equal amount from each. 

JOHN F. BURTON, Chairman,- 
F. S. ALDRIDGE, Secretary. 

HOSPITAL BOARD 

To the North Carolina Conference: 

Your Hospital Board believes that a more aggressive policy is 
needed in this great work and we recommend that the General 
Conference at its session in May, 1926, adopt a hospital policy. 

1. That will obey the command of Jesus to "heal the sick"; and 
that will worthily represent our noble Church. 

2. That will relate the Golden Cross Enrollment to the work- 
calendar of the local Church and to the reports of the pastors in 
a wise and effective way. 

3. That will make such financial provision for the General 
Hospital Board as will enable it to promote this ministry and lead 
a grand advance in hospital service. 

Faithfully yours, 

ALBERT ANDERSON, Chairman, 
W. B. COOPER, Secretary. 

ORPHANAGE REPORT 

The Orphanage Committee begs leave to report as follows: 

It is with increased interest that we note the continued growth 

of the orphanage along all lines, and the manner in which the 

institution is being conducted. 

We desire to mention the following items: 

1. The school and Administration Building, given by Brother 
S. C. Vann, has been completed and is now occupied. This is one 
of the best orphanage buildings in the South. It cost approximately 
$175,000.00 

2. We note with pleasure that there are enrolled 257 children 
at the orphanage, and we now have room for 300. 

3. As our 10% assessment only provides for about 50% of the 
running expenses of the institution, we urge large specials from 



82 North Carolina Annual Conference 

the Sunday Schools of the Conference. 

4. We specially urge all our pastors and official Boards to arrange 
for Thanksgiving offerings in every congregation, on or about 
Thanksgiving Day, to be sent direct to the orphanage. 

5. We hereby express our appreciation for the gift of the late 
Mr. J. B. Duke, under the Duke Foundation, remembering so gen- 
erously the orphanages throughout North and South Carolina. We 
would remind our people, however, that since there is such a large 
number of orphanages participating in the gift, there will be no 
great amount available to any one orphanage. 

6. Your Committee heartily endorses the plan of the orphanage 
management in sending out the singing class, and appreciates the 
splendid reception accorded the class by the congregations visited. 
We would ask our pastors, generally, to use the class as far as 
possible. 

7. The Jenkins Memorial Church is recognized as the Church 
home for the orphanage, and the facilities, being inadequate, we 
recommend that encouragement throughout the Conference be given 
to the erection of a new building properly located. 

8. We commend the work being done at the orphanage by Rev. 
A. S. Barnes, and we deeply sympathize with him in this hour 
because of the serious illness of his son, praying that his faith will 
not fail. 

9. We deeply deplore the passing of Mrs. Mattie A. Jenkins, 
the recognized mother of the orphanage, and realize that her place 
will be hard to fill. 

10. We recommend the confirmation of Mr. A. H. Vann in 
place of his lamented father, Mr. S. C. Vann, as trustee. Term 
ending 1927. 

11. We recommend the continuation of an amount equal to 
10% of pastors' salaries for the ensuing year for the support of 
the orphanage. 

12. We earnestly ask again our people to remember the orphan- 
age in their wills. 

13. We recommend the re-appointment of Rev. A. S. Barnes, as 
superintendent of the orphanage, the salary being $4,000.00. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. A. DAILEY, Chairman. 

W. C. BENSON, Secretary. 



Journal of Proceedings 83 

resolution regarding commission on admission 

Whereas the Committee on (Admissions is frequently embarrassed 
in its work because of insufficient information regarding the several 
applicants for admission on trial, and is, therefore, in danger of 
doing a grave injustice to the applicants on the one hand or to the 
Conference on the other. 

Therefore, be it resolved that the Presiding Elders be instructed 
to secure from the several applicants and present to the Chairman 
of the Committee on Admission, the following information, viz.: 
an autobiographical sketch of the applicant, testimonials from re- 
liable parties with whom the applicant has been associated, a phy- 
sician's certificate certifying to the applicants physical fitness to 
do the work of the ministry, and any other information that may 
enable the Committee on Admissions to make a wise and just 
recommendation to the Annual Conference. 

J. L. CUNNINGGIM, for the Committee. 

REPORT OF BOARD OF LAY ACTIVITIES 

The Board of Lay Activities voted that in addition to the un- 
dertakings set forth in last year's report, they would pledge them- 
selves this year: 

First: To concentrate effort upon stewardship and men's work; 
to accept our quota of $948 for the promotion of those two causes, 
this amount to be raised by districts, either from private gifts or 
the fees of the Wesley Brotherhood, which we will undertake to 
organize 

Second: To assume the obligation of 800 subscribers to the 
Miethodist Layman. 

Third: To hold district lay meetings in each district as soon 
as practicable after Conference, these to be arranged for by the 
district lay leader and the presiding elder. 

Fourth: To co-operate with plans for the Regional Conference 
on Christian Stewardship and Brotherhood Work to be held in 
Raleigh in January or February. 

Fifth: To co-operate with the Board of Missions in meeting 
the present crisis, with the Board cf Finance in its Special Effort 
for the Superannuate Endowment, with the Christian Education 
Movement in the collection of pledges, and with the Hospital Board 
in its purposes as set out at the last General Conference.

F. S. ALDRIDGE, Secretary. 



84 North Carolina Annual Conference 

report of joint commission 

The Joint Commission representing the Conferences of the 
Methodist Protestant and the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in 
North Carolina, submits the following report: 

For the most cordial and brotherly relations existing between 
these two members of the great Methodist family, we are truly 
greatful and would do all in our power to contribute to this fine 
feeling of fellowship and good will. That we may know the unity 
of a common task, we offer the following suggestive method of 
procedure in all the efforts ahead of us here in North Carolina. 

1. We would that there might be a more general interchange 
of pulpits between the ministers of the Methodist Protestant Church 
and the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. This would be help- 
ful to both preachers and people. 

2. We would that there might be an interchange of the preach- 
ers in their revival work. Each would have a contribution to make 
to the other in revival methods and zeal in the work. 

3. We would that in this time of enlarged interest in the 
country Church that every effort be made to readjust the work of 
the two Churches in those places where the work overlaps so that 
no loss may result in men or money. The contribution of the 
Duke Foundation to the work of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
South, makes it most important that we agree for a readjustment 
that will be for. the good of both of the Churches involved. We 
would also that similar effort be made to avoid crowding or over- 
lapping where new preaching places are being established in the 
towns and cities. 

4. We recommend that wherever there is an effort to make re- 
adjustments between our two Churches that the President of the 
Methodist Protestant Conference and the Presiding Elder involved 
be and are hereby constituted a Board of Mediation to act with 
the parties interested in making the readjustments. 

M. T. PLYLER, Chairman, 
R. C. STUBBINS, Secretary. 

REPORT OF THE DUKE FUND COMMISSION 
For ten years Mr. J. B. Duke has been contributing $25,000 

annually for the work of the country Churches of North Carolina. 

This money has marked a new day for the Churches in many places 

and has furnished a new impulse for the work. 

The Duke Foundation, established the present year, with the 

provision that a definite amount of the annual income shall go to 



Journal of Proceedings So 

the work of the Church in the country, has made possible a work 
undreamed of a few years ago. iA big job is before us and a heavy 
obligation is upon us. We must work to certain definite ends. A 
few may be mentioned: 

1. The efforts of the Rural Life Department of Duke University 
to secure a map of each county and a survey of each charge, should 
receive the support of all. 

2. The consolidation of Churches properly located in relation 
to consolidated rural schools; the location of parsonages in the 
country near these schools, when the rearrangement of Churches 
takes place; the building of adequate Churches wherever we ought 
to have a Church, call for wisdom and unselfish action. 

3. Churches need not expect financial aid until the site and 
plans have been approved by competent authority. This will con- 
tribute to the building of a church adequate and properly located. 

4. A district committee, along with the local committee, and 
also a representative of this commission, should be able to aid in 
securing proper location and suitable plans. 

5. At the earliest possible day demonstration charges should 
be provided with trained leadership to show what can be done by 
a more intensive effort. 

The Commission would once more remind all concerned that con- 
ditional pledges to Church buildings automatically expire unless 
the conditions are met within one year after the grant is made, 
provided, however, that the grant may be extended if a new appli- 
cation is filed with the Commission. 

The term of Reverend J. E. Holden, nominated by the Board 
of Church Extension, expires with 1925. 

M. T. PLYLER, Chairman. 
R. M. COURTNEY, Secretary. 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CHURCH PROPERTY 

Your Committee submits the following report: 

The number of Churches reported, 742; valued at $7,345,550.00. 
The indebtedness on these buildings, $631,224.00. 

There are 9 district parsonages valued at $87,500. 

There are 217 parsonages belonging to pastoral charges. These 
are valued at $1,335.50. 

The amount of insurance carried on this property is $3,143,990; 
premiums paid, $11,860.00. 

One parsonage has been damaged by fire to the amount of 
$55.00, and this amount was collected on the claim. 



86 North Carolina Annual Conference 

We urge the Trustees of Church Property to see that our prop- 
erty is adequately protected by insurance; we also call their at- 
tention to the Methodist Mutual Fire Insurance Co. This company 
is controlled by our Church, and protects the property at actual 
cost. 

We urge our people to make our Church buildings and grounds 
as beautiful and attractive as possible. 

We would also suggest that our pastors and their families 
take the best possible care of the parsonages and furnishings, and 
that they make the surroundings as attractive as possible by 
planting shrubbery and flowers. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. T. THRIFT, Chairman, 

L. T. SINGLETON, Secretary.

REPORT OF JOINT COMMISSION ON UNIVERSITY 
METHODIST CHURCH 

In selecting the contractor for the University Methodist Church, 
plans and specifications were sent to several responsible builders 
for bids. The Jewell-Riddle Co.. of Sanford, submitted the low bid 
of $156,500 and was awarded the contract, after the committee was 
assured that this firm was thoroughly reliable and that they did 
high class work. 

The heating contract was awarded to Carolina Heating and 
Engineering Co., of Durham, for the low bid of $14,500 and the 



Journal of Proceedings 87 

electric contract was given to the Durham Public Service Co., for 
the sum of $3,740.00. 

The work of construction began in January and has advanced 
satisfactorily. It is the aim of the contractors to push the work 
to completion by the first of the year. If the pew contract can 
be let and there be no delay in their manufacture and installation 
the Church will be ready for Easter services. 

There has been collected on subscriptions $137,229.00, and $132,- 
224.00 has been paid on the contracts. There are in unpaid indi- 
vidual notes about $30,000.00, but before all the bills can be paid 
it will be necessary to secure $40,000.00 in new subscriptions. The 
work, therefore, of taking subscriptions will have to be continued 
during the year. 

The plan to provide the pews is to have individuals pay for one 
sitting each at a cost of $7.50. As there are about one thousand 
to be installed an opportunity is given to a large number to have 
a part in building this beautiful Church for University students. 

Mr. James Gamble Rogers, the architect, said that it was his 
purpose to make this Church as perfect a work in Colonial archi- 
tecture as the Harkness Quadrangle at Yale is Gothic. 

The great need for this Church has been revealed this fall by 
the inadequacy of the present Church to minister to the religious 
life of the eight hundred Methodist students at the University, and 
its final completion must be constantly pursued. 

M. T. PLYLER, Chairman, 
R. M. COURTNEY, Secretary. 

COUNCIL OF RURAL AGENCIES 

With the deep sense of appreciation for the splendid benefaction 
of Mr. James B. Duke in his gift to the country Churches of North 
Carolina, with a genuine belief that the North Carolina Conferences 
have come into the kingdom for just such an hour as this, when 
vast possibilities of service and high achievement lie out before us, 
and with a keen feeling that these opportunities call for the most 
heroic and efficient leadership, we, the North Carolina Conference 
in annual session in the city of Fayetteville, N. C, resolve: 

First: That we unite with the Western North Carolina Confer- 
ence in forming a "Council of Rural Agencies" for the purpose of 
securing the co-operation of all the agencies now operating in behalf 
of the country Church, in order that larger and more definite re- 
sults may be realized. 



88 North Carolina Annual Conference 

Second: That the "Council of Rural Agencies" shall be com- 
posed of the chairman and superintendents of the Sunday School 
Boards, the chairman and secretaries of the Church Extension 
Boards, and the chairman and secretary of the Boards of Missions 
of the two Conferences, together with the President of Duke Uni- 
versity, and the head of the Department of Rural Life at Duke 
University, and the Chairman of the Duke Fund Commission. 

Third: That the "Council of Rural Agencies" shall not interfere 
with the activities of the various Boards in the prosecution of their 
work, but shall seek to correlate the work of all the agencies for 
more effective service.

ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY 

Inasmuch as the year 1926 marks the one hundred and fiftieth 
anniversary of the organization of the first Methodist circuit in 
North Carolina and since it is to be the first year when the new 



90 North Carolina Annual Conference 

funds from the beneficient gift of Mr. James B. Duke will be avail- 
able for use in the country Church buildings, it seems highly fitting 
that the two Annual Conferences of the state should take special 
notice of these facts in some suitable and uniform manner. There- 
fore, be it resolved: 

First: That the North Carolina Conference unite with the 
Western North Carolina Conference in an appropriate celebration 
of the anniversary. 

Second: That the celebration consist of setting apart the 1926 
Journal of the Conference as a "Country Church Number," and that 
this special number contain the data usually recorded, except that 
an additional statistical table be so arranged as to include reports 
of each Church within the bounds of the Conference. 

Third: That "Country Church Number" be printed on the 
cover page and that a preface be inserted within to set forth the 
reasons for such a number. 

Fourth: That the Historical Society be requested to select some 
subject for the 1926 paper that will be in harmony with the celebra- 
tion.

RESOLUTIONS OF THANKS 

Realizing the tendency of these latter days to have congestion 
in both the business and social realms, and appreciating the big- 
ness of undertaking the entertainment of such a considerable num- 
ber of ministers and laymen as compose the North Carolina Con- 
ference, each of us is prompted by feelings of admiration and 
deepest gratitdue as we contemplate the type of unselfish and 
minutely thoughtful hospitality afforded us by the citizens of the 
City of Fayetteville. 

Large indebtedness is acknowledged the pastor of Hay Street 
Church, and the members of all committees, for their kindly and 
comfortable placement of all visitors and for their discerning 



Journal op Proceedings 93 

preparation to serve the needs of even the most exacting. 

The music furnished the Conference was soul stirring. We 
would, therefore, wish that expressions of thanks be given each 
musician who contributed to this vitally essential part of our wor- 
ship. 

Our prayers of thanksgiving ascend to God in that we were 
favored and enthused by spiritual feasts on thre successive after- 
noons when sermons were delivered by Brothers G. F. Smith, D. H. 
Tuttle, and E. L. Hillman. 

Fraternal co-operation on the part of the various Protestant 
Churches of Fayetteville furnishes ample grounds for gratitude 
both to man and God. Our common desire to attain Christ's like- 
ness has caused us to think little of petty differences. 

Due appreciation is acknowledged that agent of mercy, the 
hospital. 

For the generous publicity given our Conference through the 
columns of the press and especially the columns of the Fayetteville 
Observer, we are truly appreciative. 

The cordial reception and entertainment found in the hospitable 
homes and hotels of this city have so impressed our minds and 
hearts that we shall not be forgetful of our own brief stay here. 
Acquaintances and friendships formed during these days will be 
most pleasantly cherished. Upon all the Methodists, upon all the 
Christians, upon all the souls of the splendid city of Fayetteville, 
may the priceless benedictions of the Lord God ever be lavished. 

(Signed) LEON M. HALL, 
E. L. HILLMAN, 
E. C. FEW. 

GRATITUDE TO R. H. WRIGHT AND B. N. DUKE 

Whereas, the North Carolina Conference is delighted with the 
message of success which has come to the effort to strengthen 
Louisburg College and especially with the princely gifts to our col- 
lege from Mr. B. N. Duke, who added $100,000 to its permanent 
endowment, and Mr. R. H. Wright, who gave $72,500 to build the 
Pattie Julia Wright Dormitory, therefore, be it 

Resolved, that the Conference express and record its gratitude 
to these benefactors who have not only greatly strengthened the

and ministrations of Bishop Collins Denny as our Superintendent

MEMORIALS TO GENERAL CONFERENCE 

Whereas an increasing emphasis is placed upon higher and more 
adequate education in all phases of modern life, and 

Whereas the minister is called to be a leader of all the people 
in matters of moral and spiritual attainments, and 

Whereas the educational advantages of the minister must be 
adequate to guarantee such leadership 

We the members of the North Carolina Conference in annual 
session at Fayetteville, N. C, November 13, 1925, do respectfully 
memorialize the 1926 General Conference of the Methodist Episco- 
pal Church, South, to ammend paragraph 788, section I, chapter 
27, by changing the term "Freshman Class" to "Junior Class," 
thus causing that part of the paragraph to read, "The requirements 
for admission on trial into the traveling connection, so far as 
academic training is concerned, shall be equivalent to those fixed 
by the Commission on Education for admission to the Junior Class 
of a standard college." 

W. A. STANBURY, Chairman, 
H. M. NORTH, Secretary. 



After considerable observation of candidates for admission on 
trial into the Conference and after deliberate reflection upon the 
educational inadequacy of many of these candidates, we, the mem- 
bers of the Committee on Admission on Trial heartily recommend 
to the Board of Education of the North Carolina Conference that 
this Committee memorialize the 1926 session of the General Con- 



Journal ov Proceedings 95 

ference to raise the educational standards for all candidates for 
admission on trial to a minimum requirement of at least two years 
of successful study in an A grade college or university. 

However, we further recommend that a period of grace of 
from two to four years be extended all candidates, but at the 
expiration of such period of grace these advanced standards are 
to be strictly enforced. (Signed) 0. W. DOWD, 

J. H. BUFFALOE. 

E C. FEW, 



The Epworth League Board of the North Carolina Conference 
hereby memorializes the General Conference of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South, to make such provision for correlating 
the work of the young people of our Church as will eliminate 
duplication of effort and best promote the progress of this most 
important work. W. A. CADE, President, 

E. L. HILLMAN, Secretary. 



To the General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
South : 
Dear Fathers and Brethren: 

We, the North Carolina Annual Conference, do respectfully 
memorialize you to reorganize the Board of Education, the Sunday 
School Board, the Epworth League Board, and the educational 
work of the Board of Missions so as to prevent overlapping and 
duplication of effort and to promote economy and efficiency. 

W. A. STANBURY, President, 
H. M. NORTH, Secretary. 



Your Hospital Board believes that a more aggressive policy is 
needed in this great work and we recommend that the General 
Conference at its session in May, 1926, adopt a hospital policy. 

1. That will obey the command of Jesus to "heal the sick"; and 
that will worthily represent our noble Church. 

2. That will relate the Golden Cross Enrollment to the work- 
calendar of the local Church and to the reports of the pastors in 
a wise and effective way. 

3. That will make such financial provision for the General 
Hospital Board as will enable it to promote this ministry and lead 
a grand advance in hospital service. 

ALBERT ANDERSON, Chairman, 
W. B. COOPER, Secretary. 



96 North Carolina Annual Conference 



GEORGE MILTON DANIEL 
By M. T. Plyler 

George Milton Daniel, son of George Washington Daniel 
and Debora Maria Lang, was born in Pitt County, North 
Carolina, May 25, 1884. On the afternoon of June 22nd, 
1925, near Red Springs, while in bathing with a picnic 
party of his Church and Sunday School, this promising 
young life went out. The tragedy of it all brought sorrow 
to a wide circle and left his family broken hearted. "I 
have fought a good fight, I have finished my course," was 
the text from which he preached the Sunday afternoon 
previous to his sudden going on Monday. Though little 
intended, no better summary could close this all too brief 
career. For Milton Daniel, all his early years had been 
a struggle to become well prepared for the work of the 
ministry and to gain a firm foot hold in the work; the 
end came when the future gleamed with promise. 

A brief reference to forces and influences that entered 
into the making of this young minister will help us better 
to appreciate the upward push of his life. Those who have 
gone before must not be forgotten; the mothers of men 
must evermore be reckoned with in the estimate of the 
years. 

George Washington Daniel and Debora Maria Lang, 
father and mother of George Milton Dainel, married Octo- 
ber 5, 1862. Both were reared in Pitt County by well-to-do 
parents who belonged to the slave-holding class. George 
Washington Dainel, a young Lieutenant of the Confederate 
army, came home on furlough, married Maria Lang, and 
took his bride to his father's home in the same community, 
Pactolus. Following the war, they established a home in 
that community and lived there until they went to Florida 
in 1886. This venture proved to be a dismal failure. It 
resulted in financial disaster. Unacquainted with orange 
culture and equally so with the lumber business, in both 
of which he invested heavily, George Washington Daniel 
soon had nothing; in five years all was gone.

A sister of our brother, who now resides at Arcadia, 
Florida, writes of the family: 

"There were three brothers and three sisters older than 
G. M. (Milton we called him) and myself. The three 
oldest had finished high school and we were taugh by our 
mother — an educated Christian woman— there being no 
suitable school in the community. Later my older sister 
taught a school in the community. We were very poor 
and my mother was a very delicate woman. When I was 
fourteen and Milton nine, God took her home. The oldest 
brother had gone before. The three sisters were married, 
so father, Milton and myself lived with them a year or 
two, and then father took Milton and went back to North 
Carolina and married an aunt of our (father's brother's 
widow). I remained with my sister here — that is, in 
Florida. So Milton and I have been separated all these 
years. He had an awful struggle for an education— and 
I verily believe that it was all in answer to mother's 
prayers that he succeeded. She always called him her 
preacher iboy— and taught us to know that the best blood 
of North Carolina was in our veins and we must make 
good in spite of poverty. I visited Milton while he was at 
Aberdeen and was so proud of his success and also of the 
deep religious fervor within him." 

Mrs. T. M.. Moore, of Greenville, N. C, a step-sister of 
this, our brother, bears similar testimony. She writes this 
of Milton's mother: 

"She was one of the sweetest Christian characters that 
I ever knew. From the day of Milton's birth, she began 
calling him her 'little preacher.' His father was a Chris- 
tian. Two years after his mother's death, his father mar- 
ried my mother, Mrs. Mary E. Daniel, and she too called 
him her 'little preacher.' He made his home with my 
mother until he went to Trinity College. He was always 
as a brother and son in the home. Too much could not 
be said of his two mothers. They were model Christian 
women. His home influences were the very best a boy 
could have." 

Those who knew G. M. Daniel best will most appreciate 



98 North Carolina Annual Conference 



the significance of what has been said of those early forces 
and influences that have had a part in his making. They 
followed him through all the after years. 

George Milton Daniel entered Trinity College in 1906; 
was granted A. B., 1910; A. M., 1911. He received his 
B. D. from Vanderbilt, 1914. He was received on trial into 
the North Carolina Conference in 1909, but he did not 
enter regularly into the work of an itinerant minister 
until he had finished his theological training. He served 
the following charges: Seagate, Wilmington, 1915; Chad- 
bourn, 1916 and part of '17; Aberdeen, part of '17 and '18; 
Caledonia, 1919-20; Graham, 1921-24; Red Springs, 1925. 

These few brief statements bear eloquent testimony 
to diligent and unwavering efforts in the face of fearful 
odds to gain the needed preparation for life's work. All 
honor belongs to this devoted and heroic soul. George 
Milton Daniel was capable of self-abnegation and failed 
not to practice it. While at Graham I made the sugges- 
tion to him that the charge should have at least $200 a 
year from the Board of Missions to bring it up to the 
level of three or four other charges in the district, made 
possible by the appropriations granted by the Board. He 
insisted that this be not done. He would rather do without 
the money than cripple the spirit of self-help he was 
struggling to develop. The charge needed, he insisted, some 
heroic work on the part of both the preacher and the peo- 
ple. 

A lady of Graham gives this characteristic incident: 
"When the superannuate drive was put on that Christmas, 
the teachers in the Hut gave him twenty-five dollars in 
gold to buy himself a Christmas present. He kept it for 
a few days and then brought it down to me and said: 'I 
want to pay this as part of my contribution for the worn- 
out preacher.' He said: 'I am young and strong and can 
work and get along — they need it.' " 

George Milton Daniel and Adah Vie Alderson, of Leba- 
non, were married at Lebanon, Virginia, January 23, 1914. 
Their oldest son, Milton, was born in Wilmington, Janu- 
ary 17, 1915, and Charles was born in Chadbourn, May 28,

1918. Father and mother and these two hoys made an 
inner circle that greatly enriched all who came to know 
it. The father looked with eager expectation to the com- 
ing years. How rude the shock and how sore the grief 
when this circle was broken! The mother, none too robust, 
and the boys, yet so young, were so much in need of that 
devoted father's guiding hand and stimulating example. 
The shadows are deep and heavy. 

This devoted father and mother talked and dreamed 
and planned for these boys. But life's plans have gone 
to pieces and those early dreams have vanished — save that 
the mother would make such men of them as the father 
desired that they be. In this effort, she has the noble 
heritage left and the fine example set by that father who 
trusted so implicitly in Him who has a special concern 
for the widow and the orphan. 

The tenacity with which George Milton Daniel stuck 
to a task, as displayed in his securing three degrees from 
well known institutions, and in his work in the ministry, 
even in the face of fearful odds; the loyalty manifest in 
the interest of friends, of worthy causes, of truth and 
goodness; and the thoroughness with which he laid the 
foundations upon which to build life's structure in later 
years, disclose more than an ordinary soul. His contempt 
for shams and Pharisaical pretense was known to all who 
could appreciate this good minister of Jesus Christ. He 
was so genuine and sincere that he spoke home to the 
hearts of the people and rang true on all the essentials. 
He never got lost in the letter and had slight concern for 
the forms and casements of religion. His experience was 
so genuine and his loyalty to his Lord so pronounced that 
no one ever thought of him as an echo or as a voice crying 
in the wilderness. He brought the people a message from 
God. 

Assisted by Reverends G. W. Starling, H. I. Glass, 
T. G. Vickers, and Walter A. Stanbury, we held the funeral 
service in the Methodist Church at Graham in the pres- 
ence of a crowd that overflowed into the yard. Brother 
ministers, devoted friends, ardent admirers, former pari- 



100 North Carolina Annual Conference 



shoners, and neighbors gathered to do honor to one whom 
they had known and loved. In silence and sorrow we 
laid the body to rest in a quiet spot of the cemetery over 
on the edge of town. The crowds do not pass this way, but 
many will rise up to call him blessed. Though the days 
seem too few, God will call this a completed task. As 
many of earth's fairest flowers fade before they are full 
blown and much of earth's fruit falls before it is fully 
ripe, so our brother seems to nave gone too soon. Did he 
not speak wiser than he knew, the Sabbath afternoon the 
day previous to his departure when he said, "I have fought 
a good fight, I have finished my course?" 



REV. WILLIAM A. PILAND 
By T. A. Sikes 

One by one our comrades are falling. Four answered 
the roll call up yonder last year. Four joined them in the 
Hallelujah Chorus in the land of cloudless day this year. 
Soon the Conference that we know and love here will join 
witr that one which meets in the world where no memorial 
services will be held. There all will be understood, and 
that which is imperfect will be made perfect. In this 
temporary world all of us make mistakes, and do that 
which we are forced to linger at the mercy seat for many 
weary hours in sack cloth and ashes. Only God knows 
the burdens that some carry in the secret place of their 
soul, and they at times have none but God to sympathize 
with and to walk by their side. Many times if we just 
had a friend, loyal and true, who would say to us, with 
his heart burning with love and sympathy, "Come, lets 
walk together, as the Master walked with the heartbroken 
men in other days," and we could feel the throbbing heart 
that beats with every pulsation with a love for humanity, 
what a difference it would make. None but God can 
understand and none but God ought to sit in judgement. 

The Reverend William A. Piland was born and reared 
near Margarettsville, in Northampton County. His parents 
were poor, and not over much inclined to sacrifice for the 



Journal op Proceedings 101 



training of their children. He attended the "old field" 
school from four to eight weeks during the years of his 
childhood, and developed a desire for better equipment for 
life's duties and responsibilities, and read such books as 
were available, but his means were so limited that he 
could not prosecute his studies in college. 

Brother Piland joined old Sharon Church. Meherrin 
Circuit, in the old Warrenton District, when a mere boy, 
and from that time to his death was devoted to his Church 
and to his God. He was licensed to preach under the 
ministry of Rev. A. J. Parker, of our Conferenc, in 1894 
or 1895, Rev. W. S. Black, of sacred memory, being the 
presiding elder. 

After receiving his license as a minister of the gospel, 
he spent a few months in the divinity school at Trinity 
College, under the late Dr. L. W. Crawford, he having felt 
the call to give his life work to the ministry. 

At the session of our Conference held in Elizabeth City 
in the fall of 1898 Brother Piland knocked at the door and 
was admitted on trial. He was ordained deacon at the 
same time, and elder in 1906. His first appointment was 
Hobgood Circuit, where he remained for three years, 1898- 
99-1900. His appointments from then till one to the Church 
above were as follows: Currituck, 1900-03; Carteret, 1904- 
06; Aurora, 1907; Roanoke Rapids, 1908-09; Pasquotank, 
1910-11; Mt. Olive Circuit, 1912-13; Goldsboro Circuit, 1914- 
17; Snow Hill, 1918; Junior Preacher, Elm Street and 
Pikeville, 1919-20; Supernumerary relation, 1921; Buck- 
horn, 1922-23; and Stedman, 1924 till time of death. 

On February 26, 1925, while seemingly in his usual 
health, suddenly and almost without warning this comrade 
of ours was stricken, and in a short while answered to 
his name as it was called on high. But, all who knew 
him believe that he was not taken unaware, but that he 
was ready to go to be with the Master whom he loved 
and served to the last. 

The last rites of love and respect were held over the 
mortal remains of this good brother at the parsonage, his 
last earthly home, at Stedman by Rev. W. L. Maness, Rev. 



102 North Carolina Annual Conference 



J. H. Shore and Rev. R. B. John, and the body was carried 
to Goldsboro where it was deposited to remain till the one 
to whom he had given his devotions shall come to break 
the bonds of the tomb and liberate those who sleep in Jesus. 

Brother Piland was a good gospel preacher. It nearly 
broke his heart when he called men to repentence and they 
refused to yield. He was a man of strong convictions, and 
if he had faults, and he did, for all men do, it was that 
he grew impatient because others could not agree with 
him. He loved his home, and was much concerned about 
the welfare of his children, yet he ruled them with an iron 
hand, and could never be at ease when any of them were 
away from home. 

The faults of this good brother, were like the spots on 
the sun, obscured to a large extent by his goodness and 
his loyalty to the Church, his Lord, his home and his 
friends. 

In the spirit of love and devotion, my brethren, let's 
buckle the armor a little tighter, and march together 
with our faces toward the sunrise of God's eternal day, 
striving to overcome the faults that we all surely have, 
and with brotherly love go on till God says, enough, come 
home. We will then know as we are known. 



VIRGIL POWERS SCOVILLE 
By John M. Wright 

The subject of this memoir passed peacefully into the 
silence Tuesday afternoon, March 10th, 1925, at his par- 
sonage home in Greenville, N. C., after six days' suffering 
with an unrelenting attack of pneumonia, and of him it 
may be truly said, "He was a good man, and full of the 
Holy Spirit and of faith," and through him many scores 
of souls were added unto the Lord. 

Brother Scoville was born at Fort Valley, Georgia, 
June 7th, 1879. He was a child of consecrated and pious 
parentage and of prayer. 

He was prepared for college in the common schools of 



Journal ov Proceedings 103 



his native community, and entered Emory College, and on 
leaving there spent some time in Vanderbilt University, 
pursuing post-graduate work in theology. At the early 
age of seventeen Brother Scoville began preaching, and 
for three or four years did evangelistic work as a local 
preacher, his unusual gifts as a revivalist bringing to him 
instant and wide notice as a popular and powerful "boy 
evangelist." 

In 1899 he joined the South Geeorgia Conference of the 
M. E. Church, South, and served charges as follows: 1900, 
Georgetown; 1901, McKendree Church (Brunswick, Ga.); 
Missionary to Cuba in 1902-03; Lyons and Collins Circuit, 
1904-05; in 1906 he was transferred to the Western North 
Carolina Confeerence and served Churches at Mars Hill 
and Hot Springs, in the mountains of North Carolina. 

Having recovered his health he returned to the South 
Georgia Conference in 1907 and was stationed at Grey 
Mount. In 1908-09 he served Wigham and Climax Charges; 
1900, Pavo; 1911-12; Weaverly Hall; 1913, Reynolds. 

In 1914 he was transferred to the North Georgia Con- 
ference and was stationed at Rome, Ga. 

In Athens, Ga., he served Young Harris Church, for two 
years, 1915-16; 1917, Commerce Station. 

In May of 1918 he was transferred to the North Carolina 
Conference and was appointed pastor of Trinity Church, 
Wilmington, where he remained four years, 1918-21. 

At tbe Conference of 1921 he was appointed pastor of 
Jarvis Memorial Church, Greenville, N. C, and he had 
entered upon his fourth year as pastor of this great and 
growing Church when death claimed him. 

This is but a bare outline of the times and places of 
the pastorates of this consecrated, earnest, valuable and 
valiant servant of God, as a loyal itinerant in the march- 
ing ranks of Methodisms' ministry, for in addition to 
the incessant calls and the arduous and exacting demands 
of a heavy pastorate, Brother Scoville rendered much and 
exceptionally effective service to the Church in revival 
meetings which he conducted for many of his brother 
pastors. 



10-i North Carolina Annual Conference 



In these evangelistic services he appeared at his best. 
While ranking with the foremost among his contemporaries 
as a preacher of marked ability, yet in revival meetings 
he seemed to surpass himself, and was never quite so 
happy as when he beheld penitent sinners kneeling at the 
mercy seat seeking the Saviours reconciled face and aris- 
ing with happy hearts, a heavenly halo upon their faces 
and a new song in their mouths. In these meetings he 
preached with earnest eloquence, appealing directness, in- 
tense feeling, persuasive power, and convincing logic, and 
rarely was a service barren of spiritual fruitage for he 
depended upon the scriptures and the co-operation of the 
Holy Spirit, and himself labored with unflagging zeal and 
unfailing faith born of a passion for the salvation of un- 
dying souls. 

In these meetings as well as under his pastoral guidance 
and counsel many choice young men and women with 
heavenly vision consecrated themselves to life service and 
are today by word and deed telling the old story of Jesus 
and His love to many at home and abroad. It was an 
impressive moment when at Brother Scoville's funeral a 
noble young man, a spiritual son in the gospel arose, and 
with faltering voice, recounted in the ears of the sorrow- 
ful multitude there assembled, how, when he was converted 
at the altar there one short year ago, Brother Scoville put 
his arm about him and said, "I hope you will carry the 
torch of God's truth and our Saviour's love after I have 
been called to lay it down." This young man for some 
months has been a licensed preacher and is in college pre- 
paring himself for the work of the iMiethodist itinerancy. 

During his twenty-five years as a preacher of the gospel 
Brother Scoville wore the white flower of a blameless 
life, living without reproach, and gladly and cheerfully 
going wherever he was sent, having an abiding conviction 
that he was called of God to preach the gospel of His 
Grace to all men. 

In Wilmington and Greenville, N. C, signal success re- 
warded his labors. In the former charge a beautiful, cost- 
ly, commodious, and convenient Church edifice erected dur- 



Journal of Proceedings 105 



ing his pastorate, and a large and loyal constituency, give 
witness to his heroic work and wise leadership, while in 
the latter pastorate a large and well appointed Sunday 
School building, and a largely increased and loyal member- 
ship are marks of his great work there. 

An acquaintance formed at the Conference held in Wil- 
son, N. C, a few years ago, soon ripened into a warm 
friendship, and our frequent association in revival meet- 
ings and elsewhere brought to us the abounding joy of an 
abiding affection. I loved him for his brotherly kindness, 
his sympathetic heart, genial disposition, his nobility of 
soul and his integrity of character. 

On October 7th, 1907, at Grey Mount, Ga., Brother 
Scoville married Miss Gladys Winn. To this union were 
born seven children, John Edwin, Hattie Sue, Rebecca, 
Warren Candler, Martha Elizabeth, Herbert Winn, and 
Gladys Jane Scoville. All survive except John Edwin, who 
died about two and one-half years ago. The loss of this 
noble and Christian son weighed heavily upon the broken 
hearted father. 

The father sleeps beside the son in Greenville cemetery, 
but in heaven they walk the streets of gold in happy re- 
union. 

This beloved pastor, faithful friend, devoted husband 
and father, and kind and helpful neighbor came to the 
end of his earthly pilgrimage as he had wished, actively 
engaged in the work of his Lord. He was a sympathetic 
and diligent pastor, giving himself without stint to the 
work of the ministry, and he wearied not in well doing. 

The reward given to the "Good and faithful servant," 
is the eternal enjoyment and possession of this gallant 
knight of the cross. Peace to his ashes. 



ROBERT HENRY WILLIS 
By N. H. D. Wilson 

Robert Henry Willis, son of Rev. Robert A. and Ellen 
White Willis, was born in Warrenton, N. C, December 
1st, 1872 and died in Fayetteville, N. C, January 21st, 1925. 



106 North Carolina Annual Conference 



"His life was gentle, and the elements 
So mixed in him, that Nature might stand up 
And say to all the world, "This was a man." 
These words of the master poet apply more fitly to 
him than to any other whom it has been my privilege to 
know intimately. All the elements were mixed in him. 
All the forces which make for good character met in his 
creation. Heredity? What inheritance could excel those 
two lines which culminated in Robert A. Willis and Ellen 
White? And of our brother it has been said that he in- 
herited the best qualities of each parent. Environment? 
Some foolish ones have avoided or even surrendered the 
ministry that by more lucrative employment they might 
give their children "a fairer chance in life." But the 
history of greatness in commerce, in finance, in the law 
and in statesmanship, as well as in the ministry, has proven 
that there is no more favorable nursery for greatness than 
the manse, the rectory and the parsonage. And no preach- 
er's home combined more truly "simple living and high 
thinking" than that into which Robert Willis was born. 
The greatest sermon on "Parental Responsibility" I have 
ever heard was preached by his father, and what that 
father preached both he and "Mother Willis" practiced. 
Then the mystery of the human will? 

"Our wills are ours, we know not how; 
Our wills are ours, to make them thine." 
From early childhood the will of our departed brother 
was set to do the will of God. He was always o'oedient to 
the divine and the human law. His sisters say that even 
in childhood they never knew him to commit a sin. Truly 
the Triumphant God, Creator, Redeemer and Inspirer, had 
freedom of action in our brother's life, and thus was able 
to produce the highest creature known to us, a Christ-like 
man. 

After graduation at Trinity College, where he made a 
record which any young man might covet, in the first 
class which was graduated from the new college at Durham 
in 1893, he taught in Plymouth and Kernersville. Though 
the main purpose of his teaching was to secure funds to 



Journal of Proceedings 107 



prepare himself for the ministry. He gave such service 
that his name is still as an ointment poured forth in each 
of these towns. In 1894 he entered the Biblical Depart- 
ment of Vanderbilt University, taking a two year's course. 
In 1896 he joined the North Carolina Conference at Kins- 
ton. He was ordained deacon the next year and elder at 
the earliest possible time. The vows taken, at entrance and 
when ordained, by every Methodist preacher bind to the 
highest life, and it is well that the fathers have bidden us 
answer: "I will endeavor so to do, the Lord being my 
helper." Yet high though the obligations be and many 
sided, I can not lay my finger on one phrase in which this 
man failed to live up to his vow. By God's good grace, he 
kept them all. 

His appointments have been as follows: South Edge- 
combe Circuit, 1896-97; Edenton, 1898-1901; Elizabeth City, 
City Road, 1902; Morehead City, 1903-05; Tarboro, 1906-08; 
Littleton, 1909-12; Warrenton District, 1913-14; Oxford 
Station, 1915-17; Elizabeth City District, 1918-21; Fayette- 
ville District, 1922-25. In each of these his success was 
uniformly great. 

I question if anyone would have called him "a great 
preacher." But he carried no unbeaten oil into the sanctu- 
ary; and in teaching, in feeding, and in inspiring to high 
thought and noble living, I doubt not that his sermons far 
surpassed many which would be popularly called great. 
But more effective than what he said was what he did. 
His organization, his administration, his shepherding of 
the flock, made his every pastorate a true success. But 
greater even than what he did was what he was. "The 
love of God was shed abroad in him." "Men took know- 
ledge of him that he had been with Jesus." "His light 
so shone that men seeing his good works glorified his 
Father which was in heaven." As a presiding elder he 
was painstaking, laborious, sympathetic, a skillful ad- 
ministrator and an inspiring leader, and, as Bishop Denny 
so truly testifies, "He was a particularly useful man in the 
Cabinet, for he seemed always to make the interest of the 
Church the first consideration." He asked no more of 



108 North Carolina Annual Conference 



any man that he was willing himself to invest in his Lord's 
work. Men therefore followed him gladly. Churches and 
preachers knew that there was no limit to his service ex- 
cept the limit of his ability, and that that limit was en- 
larged by his constant and trustful dependence on divine 
guidance. When he lacked wisdom, he asked of God who 
gave liberally, and few, if any, were the mistakes of his 
administration. 

As a member of the Conference Board of Missions and 
as its Secretary for many years, he was largely instru- 
mental in increasing liberality in giving and wisdom in 
expending those sacred funds. He served also as a mem- 
ber of the General Board of Missions. In 1911 he was 
elected Secretary of the Conference, and retained that 
office until his death. Quiet, systematic, resourceful, alert, 
accurate, he was an ideal secretary. The Conference could 
never estimate nor repay its obligation to him. but it 
showed its confidence and its appreciation by electing him 
to serve twice in the General Conference, thus granting 
him larger opportunity for service. 

So through the years ran the widening, deepining river 
of his service. We had hoped that it would bless us for 
years to come. But no. It is suddenly lost to our view. 
But we do not believe that it is swallowed up in the fruit- 
less sands of the desert of death. We believe that it has 
emerged on Heavenly plains, a river of life eternal. His 
call came suddenly. There was no opportunity for dying 
testimony. But none was needed. We all know where to 
find him. No one can doubt that he has heard the "well 
done, good and faithful servant." No one can doubt that 
he has been given heavenly rewards. 

In 1907 he was married to Miss Annie Blanchard, of 
Hertford, N. C, a wife in every way worthy even of such 
as he. It was my privilege to be the pastor of Mrs. Willis 
at the time and to watch sympathetically the courtship of 
my friends. I was the first guest to enjoy the hospitality 
of that new made home in Tarboro. Through the years 
I have been associated in many ways with the family, 
rejoicing in their joys and sharing their sorrows. Such a 



Journal op Proceedings 109 



wife is from the Lord. Such a husband few have found. 
Such a home is a little hit of Heaven here on earth. Only 
divine grace can comfort the sorrowing survivor, but let 
us pray that the Heavenly Father may give to her the 
"peace which passeth understanding." Let his brethren 
pray also for the three sisters who had come to lean so 
trustfully on his strength: Mrs. J. P. Kramer, so recently 
bereft of her husband, now doubly widowed, and (Misses 
Minnie and Emma Willis. 

In what I have said or shall say, I would not indulge 
in unconsidered eulogy or exaggerated praise. But how 
can one rightly estimate or record the life of Robert Henry 
Willis without seeming to those who knew him not to be 
guilty of such exaggeration? Joseph doubtless had his 
faults, but the Book makes no such record. Robert Willis 
doubtless had his faults. "To err is human." But neither 
I, nor some who knew him better than I, ever discovered 
them. In his private life, in his home and family, in his 
pastorates, in his district administration, in the larger 
activities of the Church, he was loyal, faithful, and sympa- 
thetic toward those committed to his care; in his labors 
he was obedient unto heavenly visions, faithful in that 
which was little or great, alert that he might know and do 
the will of God, ever looking unto Jesus the Author and 
the Finisher of his faith, and in life and death more than 
conqueror through Him that hath loved us. 

"Servant of God, well done! 
Rest from thy loved employ; 

The battle fought, the vict'ry won, 
Enter thy Master's joy." 



MRS. JOHN N. COLE 

By P. T. Durham 

Mrs. John Nelson Cole, Elizabeth Marshall Jones, was 
born in Mecklenburg County, Virgina, October 7th, 1855. 
In her early womanhood she married John Nelson Cole 
of North Carolina, a young itinerant whose career of 



110 North Carolina Annual Conference 



high and honorable usefulness in the Methodist Church 
was at its (beginning. To this couple there were born 
seven children, six of whom are living. John N. and 
Henry Puryear Cole of New York, Mary and Alice Cole 
of Richmond, Va., Marsall, now Mrs. R. F. Gayle, Jr., of 
Richmond, Va., and Lucy, who married Rev. Plato T. 
Durham, of Atlanta, Ga. A son, Thomas Louis Cole, died 
in the beginning of young manhood. 

The young itinerant and his bride began their work 
Jan. 1st, 1879, on the Ansonville Circuit and their pilgrim- 
age led them thence to Rocky Mount, Ridgeway, Warren- 
ton, Wilson, Raleigh, Durham, Wilmington, Rockingham 
and finally back to Raleigh, where in completion of a 
remarkable record of ministry, they guided the affairs of 
the Methodist Orphanage. Here Mr. Cole ended his dis- 
tinguished service to the Church as Superintendent for 
ten years of the Orphanage and came to the end of his 
journey in 1915. Ten years later Mrs. Cole followed him, 
dying while on a visit to her daughter, Mrs. Plato Durham, 
in Atlanta, Ga. She rests beside her husband and son 
in the little cemetery in Warrenton, N. C, the home of 
Mr. Cole's family since colonial days. 

In the annals of the itineracy there will perhaps be 
no more beautiful chapter than that written by Mrs. Cole 
and her husband. A daughter of the old South, from 
historic old Mecklenburg, and a gentlewoman by birth 
and rearing, her feet never faltered in walking the hard 
way of the circuit rider's wife. There could be no greater 
contrast than that between the life of such a girl in 
Virginia and her life as the wife of a Methodist itinerant 
in those pioneer days. But the record is that Elizabeth 
Marshall Jones made of this new life a most distinguished 
success. There are few of the great multitude who bless 
the memory of Mr. Cole as pastor who do not include in 
their benediction his beloved wife. 

Refinement, gentleness, charm and defference of man- 
ner are often thought of as delicate things needing ease 
and defence for life and expression as a flower needs 
defence from the winter's breath. But it is not so. It 



L 



Journal op Proceedings 111 



has often been shown that these qualities are as the 
polish and light upon the steel of a Damascusblade. It 
was certainly true in the case of Mrs. Cole. One did not 
know which to admire most, the gentleness or the stamina, 
the charm of grace or the gift of terrible endurance. She 
could not be frightened by circumstance. 

The mixture of qualities that made Mrs. Cole an out- 
standing woman was such as to make difficult an analysis. 
These characteristics were certainly hers: gentleness, re- 
ligious sincerity and faculty, strength of conviction and 
fineness of social consciousness. 

A certain dignity and distinction of soul went with 
and held those qualities in a unity. As was quite natural, 
the blending of these qualities became most apparent in 
her social gifts of kindness, thoughtfulness for others 
especially the unfortunate and in a most charming hospi- 
tality. In her home one breathed again the old and fine 
atmosphere of that Virginia that has become a beautiful 
tradition of the world. And this atmosphere was shot 
-through with the breath of Christian graces. 

Tried by every standard, Mrs. Cole was a great mother. 
These words need no amplification. To be right — fully 
called a great mother is quite sufficient. 

Perhaps the greatest single achievement of this unusu- 
al woman was the manner in which she met death so 
calmly, with such gentle dignity, so fearlessly did she 
fall asleep that one at her bedside said in his heart 
"surely, there is no death." Surrounded by her children, 
thinking and speaking to the last of their well being and 
comfort, she sank to sleep. The long day was over, the 
hard journey of the young Methodist itinerant and his 
bride was ended and the lights of Home flashed at last 
through the deepening shadows of the great night. 



MRS. MATTIE ATWATER JENKINS 
By Rev. W. H. Brown 

On the evening of October 28, at 8:30, just as nine souls 
were giving their hearts and lives to Jesus, as the result 



112 North Carolina Annual Conference 



of her request to the writer, "Take the name of Jesus to 
everyone to whom you can," the spirit of Mrs. Mattie 
Atwater Jenkins went to heaven to rejoice with the angels 
over their conversion. 

Mrs. Jenkins was born April 15, 1861. She was the 
daughter of Jehiel and Martha Atwater. 

As a young woman she was frail of body, but robust 
in spirit, and as time passed she became even a greater 
spiritual being. When she told her brothers that she was 
going to seek the position as Matron at the Methodist 
Orphanage at Raleigh, it having just thrown open its 
doors, they said to her, "You can't stand it. Your health 
will break down in three months." She replied, "The Lord 
will take care of me." 

She came to the Orphanage in January, 1901, and took 
charge with only five children for whom to care. In Sep- 
tember, 1902, she was married to the Reverend John W. 
Jenkins, the Superintendent and founder of the institu- 
tion. From then until the time of the death of Brother" 
Jenkins, the two put their all into the Home for the sake 
of the children that were and should be there. After his 
death her sole aim was to spend and be spent for the sake 
of the orphan children of our Conference. 

For twenty-four years, as head matron, she labored 
unstintedly, unselfishly, and tenderly and lovingly for the 
children to whom God had called her to be a mother. Some 
who have been reared there may have spoken disparagingly 
of some of the other workers, but never have I heard of 
one thus speaking of her. She was a respected, a revered, 
a beloved woman by the entire Orphanage family and 
by all who knew her. 

Few women have ever carried the burden on their 
hearts that this woman carried on hers, and fewer still 
have ever walked with such a firm and steady step as did 
she as she carried it. Her perseverance, her hopefulness, 
her courage, and her faith were of the most superior type. 
She was one whom her co-laborers always found kind, 
gentle, sympathetic, and helpful. 

May the spirit of our sister ever hover above our be- 



Journal of Proceedings 113 



loved Orphanage and walk with every child within and 
without to warn them of impending danger and to guide 
them in paths of peace and righteousness for His name's 
sake. And may her memory ever he green in their minds! 



ETHEL THOMPSON MERCER 
By D. E. Earnhardt 

Ethel Waldo Thompson was born at Cary, N. C, on 
August 12, 1878. She was the daughter of Rev. J. E. 
Thompson, of the North Carolina Conference. Her mother 
was before her marriage to Mr. Thompson, Jane Bouy. 
Rev. J. E. Thompson was one of the gentlest and most 
cultured ministers of his day. His wife was bright and 
witty. Such a couple made an ideal parsonage home. It 
was in such a home that Ethel was born. She inherited 
fine traits of character from both parents. After finishing 
high school, Ethel completed her education in a Christian 
college. Like many college women, she entered the teach- 
ing profession. Her fine training and great energy made 
her way popular and successful as a teacher. 

She was married to Rev. S. E. Mercer on September 
25, 1900, Bishop John C. Kilgo officiating. The first years 
of her life were given to home making and to service to 
her Church. She entered enthusiastically into all the 
works and purposes of the Church and community. There 
was no cause that was worthy that did not enlist her 
sympathy, and engage her service. Her fine gifts were 
always at the disposal of various departments of the Church, 
when called for. So many things she did well that she 
drew too heavily upon her strength. After a few years 
her health became impaired, but she loved to live and 
work so well that she continued to take an active part in 
all the activities of the Church. She was anxious always 
to be of help at every point. For many years she was a 
semi-invalid and finally a total invalid. Much of her time 
was spent in variuos hospitals. She came from one of her 
hospital experiences to take up life on crutches, and a 
few years later had to depend on a rolling chair. She ad- 



114 North Carolina Annual Conference 



justed herself, however, to these handicaps in a wonder- 
ful way. She learned to live and work and be happy in 
spite of her limitations. She often remarked that much 
of the world's best work was done by those who suffered. 
Her eager mind was ever on the alert in acquiring more 
knowledge. Her memory was wonderful. Large portions 
of the Bible were retained in her mind, and she knew 
almost all of the songs of our Hymnal, and much of our 
best literature. She was a fine reader, and enjoyed read- 
ing with her children. Frequently she would get one of 
her children to roll her down to the colored section and 
give readings to the colored women and children. They 
always looked forward to those story hours. In this way 
she did much good, and she was loved by these colored 
people for the interest she took in them. She did a real 
home mission work in this way. Her fine sense of humor 
made her very attractive to the young people, and she 
loved to work with them. She took an active part in 
League, Sunday School, Woman's Missionary work, and 
also various forms of community work until a few months 
before her death. She belonged to the Shut-in Society, 
and with her lame hands wrote hundreds of cheering 
letters to invalids all over the country. She was ever 
taking the sorrows of others upon her own heart. Her 
friends sent her many beautiful flowers which she in- 
variably passed on to others. She largely forgot her own 
sorrows in trying to help others. In the early part of 
last year, after Mr. Lee, a trained collector of fine ability, 
had done his best to close the Centenary work, Mrs. Mercer 
asked the privilege of continuing the collecting herself. 
In her rolling chair, she surprised the entire Church by 
the large amount that she collected. She did this for 
the love of the cause of Missions. This was her closing 
work. Only once or twice was she well enough to attend 
Church after this. 

The month following was full of pain and suffering. 
Her faith, courage, and will power continued to inspire 
others to better living and service. There are a number of 
missionary societies in the Conference named after her.

Her influence will continue to live on in the hearts and 
minds of many. Her mind retained its normal mentality 
until about two weeks before her death, when the rheuma- 
tism settled in her brain. Even in those hours of uncon- 
sciousness, she continued to talk of her Saviour and His 
love. 

In the early hours of December the fifth, 1924, her soul 
passed into one of those mansions of which our Saviour 
tells about. Her tired, worn body was laid to rest in a 
beautiful spot in Maplewood Cemetery in Durham, N. C. 
The large attendance and the many beautiful floral offer- 
ings at the funeral showed how tenderly she was loved. 
"Whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die."
